2017 marks 20 years of Katchafire and their Legacy Tour. After blazing through the New Zealand festival circuit and conquering the United States, Katchafire are doing a UK tour.
Katchafire presents an infusion of the legendary reggae lineage, an almost indefinably Maori sound and a new dimension of soul and healing that resonates across cultures and generations. Pioneers of the reggae revival, Katchafire has reconnected New Zealanders and those on distant shores with the soulful rhetoric of the reggae bloodline.
From humble beginnings ‘jamming’ in a garage, Katchafire is a melting pot of unique members, including two generations of one family and diverse musical perspectives – yet this blend is exquisitely aligned with the essence of reggae which can be an expression of social and political persuasions, hardship and pain, relaxation and reflection.
